Remembering the words of

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Once in a rare while words can truly make a difference in our world, and Martin Luther King quotes are testimony to this fact. As the date of his birth quickly approaches, let us remember the greatness of this man with 10 enlightening Martin Luther King quotes to remember. 1. “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” 2. “Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.” 3. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” 4. “We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” 5. “We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.” 6. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

7. “Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.” 8. “Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man’s sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.” 9. “Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’” 10. “A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.” Martin Luther King Jr. stood up in the face of controversy to defend what he believed in. He sacrificed greatly to make changes in a world that desperately needed them. This month, when we remember him on the day of his birth, let these 10 Martin Luther King quotes remind us of what he stood for and all that we still need to learn.

Making Nutrition a Positive Learning Experience for Young Children

G

ood nutrition contributes to a young child’s well-being and health. Children must have food to grow and to have a healthy body. We want to ensure that the foods our children eat help promote the growth and the energy that they need. It is a basic need that we all require. As adults, we must set an example and have the knowledge of good nutrition. Children need to be aware that we need to eat a variety of foods each day. We do not get the nutrition we need from just one food. Eating is an activity that is enjoyed by everyone. It can stimulate a person’s senses, creativity, emotions ,and learning experiences. Parents and teachers can encourage children to establish healthy eating habits and a positive attitude toward meals, which can become acceptable to young children. Mealtime settings should be in a pleasant atmosphere, which can attribute to the child’s social and emotional experiences.

Here are some ideas that can help: Food Pyramid: Even with young children you can introduce the Food Pyramid, and work on activities to get them interested as to why we eat healthy food. (MyPyramid.gov - United States Department of Agriculture - For Kids) ŇOpportunity Knox

Plant a Garden: Whether it is indoors or outdoors, have the children participate in planting a garden. They can plant some vegetables and see how they grow. You can also use clear see-through plastic containers for a window garden, so they can view how some vegetable grows underground. Assign some children to take care of the garden (water the plants, pull weeds, etc.) When the vegetables are ready for picking, let the children sample them, or use the vegetables in a cooking project. Let the children know too, that some vegetables grow above ground, some grow below ground. Our fruits grow on trees and bushes, and some grow above ground. Food Collage: Let the children cut out pictures from magazines of what they like to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Glue the pictures to a poster board. Then have the children cut out pictures of nutritious foods they should eat for those meals and glue them on another poster board. Have them compare the two poster boards and talk about the decisions that they made. Reading Labels: Bring in various empty food boxes and cans (cereal boxes, frozen food boxes, cookie boxes, soup cans, pasta cans, milk and yogurt containers, soda bottles, etc.). With the children, read the labels to see what ingredients are in that boxed food or canned food item. Let them decide what foods are good and not so good, and why.


Expand Their Senses: Bring out foods with different colors, tastes (sweet, sour, salty), smells, shapes (round, cubed, stringed), texture (soft, hard); temperatures (hot, cold). Let the children sample each of the foods. Make a chart and have the children compare the different foods that appeal to them and ask them why they chose those foods.

have the children pass around the food dishes and serve themselves. This is a time where parents and teachers can reenforce table etiquette and model appropriate behavior at the table. The atmosphere should be relaxed, where pleasant conversation can take place, or play some soft, soothing music in the background.

Plan a Menu: Using the Food Pyramid, have the children come up with a menu for a simple meal of their choice. Let them go through some children’s cookbooks and write down what they will need and how much they will need to prepare this meal.

With these activities, the children also learn to work as part of a team in large or small groups. They learn and accept the cultural differences through food activities and ethnic foods. They will learn where many foods come from and the meaning of foods in different cultures. Children learn positive selfconcepts when they master a skill for themselves.

Extended Activity: Take the children on a tour to the grocery store so they can see how the many foods are displayed, and why they are placed in refrigerated coolers, freezers, shelves, cases, etc. Let them help gather the foods they will need to prepare their meal. Cooking Activities: Get the children involved in healthy cooking activities. Children need to learn that before they do any cooking activity, foods must be handled carefully. They need to learn the proper technique of hand washing. If food is not properly handled, it can make them sick. Let the children read the cookbook, measure, pour, mix, stir, knead, spread or roll out, etc. Some of the older children can use small kitchen appliances (toaster over, blender, microwave — with adult supervision). They also learn science concepts such as ounces, teaspoons, cups, counting, and time, as well as heating, chilling, mixing, cooking, liquids, and solids. They learn the name of foods name of the utensils. The children also learn what goes into the meal they are preparing, and they will feel better about eating what they prepared. Children need to know that there are some foods that have to be cooked before they are eaten — and that some foods have to be hot and some have to be eaten cold. They need to learn that there is a proper way to clean up and store leftover foods. Creating a Relaxed Atmosphere: Have the children gather around the table, make sure there is a place for everyone. When it comes to eating your meal,

Fort Knox Child, Youth & School (CYS) Services participates in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program. Nutritious breakfasts, lunches, and snacks are provided for children and youth enrolled in CYS Services programs. Menus are reviewed and approved by the Nutrition Branch at Ireland Army Community Hospital. Youth attending the School Age Services Program or Middle School Teen Center have the opportunity to join the Cooking Club, where they can learn more about planning and preparing nutritious meals and snacks.

HOLIDAY HANGOVER During the holidays, many people rush to their mailboxes, searching for cards and gifts. Then credit card statements, which fueled the holiday spending, are preparing to arrive and the enthusiasm has faded into worries. Many Americans could be facing a balance of more than $10,000 on their credit card bills. A survey around Thanksgiving found that three out of four American consumers plan to pay their holiday debt off in three months, but another survey found a third of consumers were still paying off holiday debt from 2006. That’s why credit counselors typically see about 40 percent more customers in January than any other month. Credit counselors are like personal trainers. Some people need the motivation and they help instill discipline. There’s no shame there. It’s better to ask for help than to just get fatter with debt.

Attack the Debt Quickly: Leaving the bills unopened in a pile won’t make the debt go away. Get ahead of the game. The goal is to pay down that holiday debt by March. One way to do that is to not add to the problem. Use cash or your debit card and stop adding to the pile of debt. Put those credit cards in a lockbox or cut them up. Pay Something, Anything on the Bill: You can’t blow off your bills. If you do, you’ll incur late fees, which often run into the $40 range. Then there’s the finance charge, a meter that keeps ticking every day you delay making your payment. So pay at least the minimum each month on each card. Position Yourself for Next Year: Set aside $25 to $100 each month through an automatic transfer to savings earmarked as a holiday fund so that you don’t get yourself in this predicament next year. Keep a spending diary with a list of where your money goes for a month. When you sit down to pay your bills, you’ll see where all your money disappears to. It’s a big wake-up call.

Through smart planning and consistent self-control you will find that you and your family can survive these tough economic times. One of the most important things to remember is that no matter what, you can overcome financial hardships. Being smart about your finances is key to healthy mental health. The stress and pressure of being behind or upside-down in debt can place a huge burden on you and the people around you. Fort Knox Army Community Service has several programs that will help you and your family reach financial freedom through goal-oriented planning, proper budgeting, and spending.
